Goodbye free time I have discovered Timberborn

By Liam Dawe,
A city-building colony-sim where a bunch of Beavers are building a society long after us pesky humans died off is not a thing I thought I needed but Timberborn is properly great.

Dave the Diver is a big beautiful blue gem

By Liam Dawe,
I’ve been playing through a game called Dave the Diver released on 28 Jun, 2023 from developer MINTROCKET. It seems to have taken Steam by storm with over 36,000 user reviews giving it an overwhelmingly positive rating. After picking up a copy for myself and playing it, I can see why people love it so much.

The OmniCase 2 from JSAUX is a quality USB-C hub worth grabbing

A while ago hardware accessory maker JSAUX sent over the OmniCase 2 Pro, and it's a great USB-C hub worth grabbing if you need some extra ports for a Steam Deck, a desktop, laptop or anything in between.

If You Like... Left 4 Dead

By scaine,
What’s this? An entirely new genre, you say? Well, arguably that’s exactly what Valve presented to the public in 2008 with the original Left 4 Dead, and its superlative sequel the following year. But was it really a new genre?

Halls of Torment is out in Early Access - a great fusion of Diablo and Vampire Survivors

By Liam Dawe,
What do you get if you combine classic Diablo with Vampire Survivors? Well one developer decided to show you with an unholy combination in Halls of Torment.

If You Like… Diablo

By scaine,
There shouldn’t be any arguments when I claim that the original Diablo was a masterpiece. Launched in the 90’s, it defined a new genre of dungeon crawling, successfully mixing traditional Rogue/Nethack elements with beautiful visuals, real-time combat, class selection, an innovative loot system, and haunting music. Let’s look at the series as a whole, and the genre it largely created.

Soul Survivors is a refreshing skill-based time-survival Vampire Survivor-like

By Liam Dawe,

STAR WARS Jedi: Survivor had a very rough launch

By Liam Dawe,
Here we go again! Just like The Last of Us Part I (and so many other games recently), another major game released too early. STAR WARS Jedi: Survivor is a hot mess.
